Whether you're looking to collect it, clean it, query it, visualize it, explore it, analyze it or mine it - CHI's team of IT professionals and data scientists can help.

Use the menu to the left to browse our services, or request a general consultation if you're not sure what you need.

NOTE: Demand for data services fluctuates during the year. While some data requests are filled within a week or two, it may take 4 weeks plus. Please plan ahead to avoid delays that may affect deadlines in your research pathways.

general_consult.svg General Consult Discuss with CHI about your data, technology development, or data analysis needs. We have Epic-certified analysts, application developers and data scientists on staff, along with closely aligned data science faculty. From study design, to designing ways for more effective utilization of biohealth data, to enhancing your grant submissions, our integrated group in Biomedical Informatics can help enhancing your biohealth data science. If you are a student, we can provide certain subsidized services, see Terms of Service. More info
trinetx.svg Study Feasibility & Publishing using TriNetX TriNetX is an intuitive, elegant, and ultra-fast tool for querying UC Health’s Epic data and the global research network. TriNetX can find patient cohort counts defined by clinical criteria such as diagnoses, demographics, clinical procedures, lab results and medications. These queries can be used for feasibility, subject recruitment, hypothesis generation, or defining a clinical data extract for analysis. TriNetX is a self-service tool but complex queries can be mediated by CHI for a fee. If TriNetX does not have the detailed elements required, we will escalate the request to a search within Epic. (See 'Study Feasibility directly from Epic') More info
